If you have the following situation:

public abstract class BaseEntityObject {
  private Integer myInt;

  @Column(name = "SOME_COLUMN")
  public Integer getSomeColumn() {
    return myInt;

  public void setSomeColumn(Integer value) {
    myInt = value;

public class EntityA extends BaseEntityObject {
  private Integer myOverridingInt;

  @Column(name = "SOME_COLUMN")
  public Integer getSomeColumn() {
    return myOverridingInt;

  public void setSomeColumn(Integer value) {
    myOverridingInt = value;

public class EntityB extends BaseEntityObject {

If EntityA's someColumn field gets weaved first, the BaseEntityObject's someColumn never gets weaved. However, if EntityB gets weaved first, both EntityA.someColumn and BaseEntityObject.someColumn get weaved.

This is because the static weaver builds up a list of 'unMapped' fields. When EntityA is weaved, the unMapped fields set becomes empty. So when the superclass (BaseEntityObject) gets processed, it never visits the 'someColumn' field for weaving.

Is there a bug for this? Should this be a bug? Or should mapped properties on base classes be required to be final?
